Although there is a slight controversy over using opiates to treat an opiate addiction, the FDA has approved Buprenorphine treatment as an effective way to deal with opiate withdrawal. However, unless you are enrolled in a treatment center such as Cliffside Malibu, there is still a slight risk that Buprenorphine can be addictive. The reason for this is that it is an opiate; it just contains a lot less opiates then heroin or methadone. Moreover, without the help of Cliffside Malibu or another addiction treatment center, a Buprenorphine treatment will only serve to treat your physical addiction to opiates. It will do nothing for your psychological addiction.
This is how we can help you at Cliffside Malibu. The location and atmosphere we provide for you at Cliffside Malibu is perfect for putting your mind and body at ease as you progress through your drug and alcohol treatment program. Moreover, we offer other options besides Buprenorphine treatment to help you overcome you opioid addiction and make withdrawal easier. If you are not comfortable going through the Buprenorphine treatment, you will have other medicinal and holistic treatment options. By calling Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988, you will have a vast array of treatment options available to you in a luxury atmosphere.
What Does The Buprenorphine Treatment Entail?
As an opiate addict, you probably want to explore every treatment option available for you and this may include Buprenorphine treatment. As with any medical/mental treatment, it is wise to consider what the Buprenorphine treatment entails. This is the only way to be completely informed when asking your doctor or treatment center about it so as to decide if this is the best plan of action for your addiction. Essentially, the Buprenorphine treatment consists of two drugs; Subutex and suboxone. Subutex is known as opioid agonists, which means it produces the same affects as heroin or Oxycontin on a lesser level. Suboxone is a mixture of Buprenorphine and Naloxone and is known as an opioid antagonist because while it does use opiates to bind your receptors, the Naloxone keeps it from being abused through deactivating other, if you were to relapse, and the opiates in the suboxone if you were to inject it. Essentially, you are replacing your opiate of choice with Buprenorphine. This is where the issue lays, because if you are only replacing your drug with another drug, without treating the mental and emotional aspects of your substance abuse addiction, you are, in fact, still dealing with opiate addiction. If you would like help with your addiction, please call Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988.
Other Treatments Are Needed With Buprenorphine Therapy
If any doctor has told you that Buprenorphine treatment is all you need to handle your opiate addiction, they were wrong because it is only treating your physical addiction. The nature of any addiction is that it affects every aspect of your being. Therefore, your treatment needs to include programs that will treat every aspect of your addiction. This is exactly what will happen if you were to enroll in the luxury drug rehabilitation center Cliffside Malibu, because we understand that you need physical, emotional, and mental help. The first way we offer this help is through creating a luxury environment for you. We believe that the more comfortable you are, the easier your Buprenorphine treatment will be.

This includes family and marriage therapy, spirituality group, massage therapy, individual counseling, life assessment group, meeting with a recovery coach, and so much more.
Buprenorphine Treatment Is Not Your Only Option
If you are scared of what Buprenorphine entails, which is replacing your opioid with a weaker opioid, then you need to know that this treatment is not your only option. In fact, at Cliffside Malibu, we will surround you with luxury to alleviate some of the discomfort of your recovery process. We also offer holistic treatments to help you learn to cope with your withdrawal and rehabilitation with out the use of prescription drugs.

The Power Behind Buprenorphine Treatment
Believe it or not, the power behind your Buprenorphine treatment is you. This is true because you had the courage to face your addiction to opiates, call it out, and then enroll in a Buprenorphine treatment program. Thus far, your life has revolved around opiates. Every time you felt physical or emotional discomfort you could hide behind an opioid high. Now, as you enroll in rehab and start your Buprenorphine treatment, you are learning to cope with everyday life without the help of drugs, but rather with tools you will be taught during your rehabilitation. You are learning effective and healthy ways to deal with physical and emotional pain as you are reprogramming your body to live without its drug. This is why you are the power behind your Buprenorphine treatment, because without what was mentioned above, sobriety would not be within your reach. The hope of healing comes with admitting you have an addiction, researching possible programs such as Buprenorphine treatment, and then enrolling in a rehabilitation center, such as Cliffside Malibu, to help you with your emotional needs.
